to understand...though they have tried their very best with multiple teaching styles.I accept this subject will be boring without conversation style,pictures,etc.But I think some depth is required to make us understand.(eg. I could hardly understand if a big file structure is needed for the first beer application and if I cut down on some of the folders and store all the files in a single folder,nothing would work)

From the time,I started to setup tomcat I have been reading some other resource or internet besides this book.

Has anyone tried Hanumant deshmukh 2nd edition and found it helpful?

As I have always said, one book good for one person isn't necessarily for another. There are a number of books on Java EE for beginners---if you have no experience whatsoever, these are excellent places to start as they introduce you slowly to the topics. Cert books are generally designed to cover the content and ask questions so you learn it to pass the exam, not introduce complex topics to the complete beginner.

Having said that, I'd also suggest taking a look at my book. It is more in the "textbook" style of the K&B SCJP book, rather than the Head First series. It takes you through the topics in an orderly manner, one by one. There is a table of contents and sample chapter on the garnerpress.com link in my signature below so you can see what you think without committing. More on SCWCD Links.

P.S. I assume you mean "new to SCWCD" in the subject?
